Using HDMI Scaling on Second Monitor Causes Stuttering/FPS on Primary Monitor. (Only when viewing videos/streams)
Hello all. I just wanted to report that HDMI scaling when used on my second monitor causes stuttering on my primary monitor only when viewing videos, or streams from what I can tell. It's not FPS drop because my fps is still the same when I am playing games at the same time (I usually watch videos/streams while gaming). My primary monitor is at 60 refresh rate while my second monitor (which is just my tv) is at 30 refresh rate. When I put the HDMI scaling at 0 the issue stops.
It seems like when I enable HDMI scaling on my second monitor it caps the refresh rate of my primary monitor to 30 for some reason, or causes stutter. Not sure if there is a solution that would allow me to use HDMI scaling, and keep my refresh rate, but if there is it would be nice. It's not a big deal, but I would like to not have a bunch of my TV cut off.
My current set up is
Dell Inspiron (or however it's spelled)
GPU: RX 580
CPU: Ryzen 1700
Anyways, just thought I'd see if I"m the only one with the issue as I can't find any info about this problem when I search. Have a nice day, and thanks for the help.
Using your graphics card to render 2D applications (videos) and 3D applications (gaming) at the same time has caused these issues forever. That is why there is a selection to disable hardware acceleration on every computer. You will not notice any difference.
